NASA: Commercial Partners Key to Sustainable Moon Presence

Quote

As NASA shifts human exploration back to the Moon, U.S. commercial partnerships will be a key to expediting missions and building a sustainable presence on the lunar surface. The agency is orchestrating a robotic lunar campaign with a focus on growing commercial base of partnerships and activity that can support U.S. science, technology, and exploration objectives.

NASA is planning a series of robotic commercial delivery missions as early as 2019 ahead of a human return to the Moon. These missions will deliver NASA instruments and technology to the surface of the Moon to conduct science and prepare for human exploration. Among the instruments to be flown are the instrumentation suite from the former Resource Prospector mission concept.

A lot of questions to be answered. Can human beings live permanently on the moon or will physiological effects of low gravity make our individual visits, temporary? Can a human colony or base be made self-sustainable? Can radiation and Solar Weather dangers be overcome? Interesting times.

I can suggest a giant 3d printer. Reduces the necessity to carry lots of materials and tols as it can print whatever is necessary.
